Celebrities share messages of support on social media #WeAreOrlando

LGBTQ and ally celebrities are sharing messages of support after yesterday's horrific tragedy in Orlando, Florida. GLAAD stands in solidarity with Florida's LGBTQ community and is working to support the efforts of Equality Florida.

Donations can be made to help the victims and families affected by the Pulse shooting through Equality Florida's GoFundMe page. More resources are available here for those seeking information or who wish to offer help, you can also find a vigil near you to honor the victims and families. GLAAD introduced a temporary profile frame that allows Facebook users to add a pride flag flying at half-staff and We Are Orlando banner to their profile photo. To add the filter, click "Try it" at the bottom of this post and set the length of time the frame will last. The frame has been used over 1.1 million times. 

“Our hearts are broken for the victims and families of the horrific tragedy in Orlando,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “This unimaginable atrocity has not only robbed countless people of their loved ones, it has also stolen a sense of safety within the LGBTQ community. As we mourn the victims of this unspeakable attack, we are also reminded that the work to end hate in all its forms must continue.”

Condolences and prayers to Orlando
